      Once Freed this vessel deserves a new present-tense or future-tense re-christening, methinks.

      I realize the news is focusing on the harsher negative aspects of the vessel being stuck for long period of time. If, in fact, the vessel got stuck due to Mother Nature I can’t help but imagine there is some positive aspect to this predicament. Who knows?

      That’s a Big Job. May all involved get through the unblockage without injury or further incident.

      1. Update (3/27/2021):

        He told the Dutch current affairs show Nieuwsuur on Friday night that the front of the ship is stuck in sandy clay, but the rear “has not been completely pushed into the clay and that is positive because you can use the rear end to pull it free.”

        Reminds me of a recent mud predicament with a beloved Ford Super Duty. Lol. Once they all get it unstuck they should all shout in unison:

        “What the Ever💜Loving fuck?!?”
